A fun way to motivate kids to unplug each day! These daily bingo activity cards are full of activities to do around the house. Complete 1 bingo before having free time!
As soon as it was announced the school was closing for two weeks I came up with a schedule for the kids to keep a sense of normalcy at home. It didn’t work out. After a day I knew that things would have to be a bit more flexible. The kids are doing Zoom classes and chats at different times and one standard schedule just wouldn’t work out for everyone.
Then the governor of Virginia announced two days ago that school would be out for the rest of the school year. That’s like 5 months of summer break, which would be AWESOME if we could leave the house and go on outings together! The MAIN reason that I wanted a schedule was to avoid having kids walking around bored or asking to watch a movie or play on the computer first thing in the morning.
Daily Bingo Activity Cards for Kids
My friend, Brooke, shared a picture of a bingo game that she made for her kids and I told her that I was 100% going to copy her. Hers was hand drawn and laminated. I jumped on Picmonkey and created one for our family.
Our card is generic enough that it would work for most families, but it’s always nice to have a customizable option. For this reason I created a blank version that you can print out and write in your own activities.

How to Use Bingo Activity Cards
Each card is laminated for long term use. The kids can mark their bingo with a dry erase pen and wipe it off each day. You can even add a magnet to each one and keep it on the refrigerator.
I filled the daily bingo cards with activities that fell under our “creative time” portion of the schedule. They have to complete one bingo before noon to be able to have free time when Mac goes down for his nap.
As you can see, the activities are all fun or engaging. Basic daily tasks like making their bed, getting dressed or cleaning their room are not on the cards. Those things need to be done before they can start the daily bingo card.
